Well it came and went last Sunday without nary a peep from the Borg collective here. Big Grin Big Grin The only reason why I watched it is because I had too much vested time in watching that loser show. THANK THE GOOD LORD IT IS OVER!!!!!!

Now for the multitude of spin-off shows featuring even Michonne and Rick. Yeah...won't be watching. Learned my lesson in one go-around with this show...

Never watched one episode, only blasted with all the TV commercials about it over the years. Sounds like I made a good decision...

Like many here, I was a fan at the start of the first episode, decent zombie post apocalypse entertainment. The last glimpse I had of the series was years ago when it still had Glen and Abraham. When the guy with the baseball bat was beating on them, I turned it off and never watched it again. I was slowly losing interest in the series anyways and that episode was the final push. Right now, I can't remember many of the character's names anymore.

A good buddy stayed with it because similar to Lost, he enjoyed the initial stories and was curious to see how they’d play out.

Fair to say he was pretty bitter about the ending, saying there were dozens of cool/sad/horrific/happy outcomes that the writers could have chosen, but instead used the ending to set up future spin-offs and revenue.

He swears that he will never watch even one episode of those.

Slight thread drift…say what you will about Marvel and comic book movies, but ‘they’ made the decision to pay the fans back for the ‘many’ Marvel movies they had watched and paid money to see by giving them an ending in the Avengers movie that literally have fan-reaction videos all over YouTube.

That is how you take care of a fan base you has invested years in your product.

I think I stopped watching sometime around Alpha getting killed. Can't remember where I stopped with Fear

I quit it a season or so ago. It became a literal effort to watch.

Did Rick come back? Where was he all that time?

^They're bringing Rick and Michonne back as one of several spinoffs. The others are a Maggie/Negan spin, and a Daryl/Carol (oops, Melissa McBride has now left the show; just Daryl I guess).

Even a dyed-in-the-wool fan like me found the final season painfully boring, though I stuck with it. The series finale wrapped up many of the relationships emotionally, but as already mentioned there were a lot of setups for the upcoming spins.

I quit watching it years ago when I heard they killed Glenn. Frankly, even then watching it had become a slog. Those people kept making the stupidest possible decisions, and it strained willing suspension of disbelief for me, until I finally gave up.

And now for a message from Cracked.com as to why zombies aren't really that scary.




I hate offended people. They come in two flavours - huffy and whiny - and it's hard to know which is worst. The huffy ones are self-important, narcissistic authoritarians in love with the sound of their own booming disapproval, while the whiny, sparrowlike ones are so annoying and sickly and ill-equipped for life on Earth you just want to smack them round the head until they stop crying and grow up.

I got tired long ago and when I realized I was rooting for the Zombies I left happily. Cant believed they milked that many seasons out of this show.

I quit watching years ago during an episode in which it was pretty obvious a female character was about to be sadistically tortured. It didn't help that I'd seen enough of that shit for real during my career.

He did not reappear for the series finale. But there was some lengthy post-show preview featuring him and Michone. They're out roaming around somewhere. Don't know. Don't care. My GAF meter is pegged at zero...

Rick was "lost" in the bridge explosion during season nine, but it's later revealed he's still alive and last seen boarding a helicopter from the mysterious CRM (Civic Republic Military) civilization.

Andrew Lincoln left the series to spend more time with his family. However, his return was planned originally as a series of theatrical release movies, also featuring Michonne, last seen apparently joining a different group of survivors. Now it's going to be a limited spin-off series, and it looks like they're still searching for each other.

I had no idea they were still making episodes of this. I got bored with it a decade ago.

To my surprise I stuck it out to the end. My wife bailed a few years ago. The highlight of the finale were the commercials featuring zombies.

GLAD it's over! Had a good first few years than went in the crapper. Will not be watching any of the spin offs, will not finish watching Fear. I was that disappointed. That whole "fool me once" parable.
